THE FUTURE TAKES CENTER STAGE

Designed to bring industry thought leaders together, the Best Practices for Big Data in Life Sciences Research Workshop introduces approaches that will help bring greater value for your organization as well as give you an opportunity to share your science and best practices with the broader community. Featuring presenters from top organizations, this workshop touches on areas such as consent tracking and accreditation for clinical data, data and workflow management systems and secure data clouds for scientific collaboration and active archive. Attendees from institutions such sequencing facilities, cancer research centers, agritech and pharmaceutical companies, also participate and share their best practices for handling research data across its entire lifecycle and how they are achieving faster, more actionable results.

Held at the start of the 2016 Bio-It World Conference and Expo, this workshop was the premiere event for exploring the best practices and cutting-edge technologies that are helping organizations overcome their current data management and analytics challenges. This year’s event provided valuable insight with a great lineup of speakers, birds of a feather discussions and open conversations with participants from top institutions across the globe.

The current wave of machine generated Life Sciences data is providing insight to biological and chemical systems which will expand understanding, end suffering and drive funding for Genomics, Clinical and Pharmaceutical Research. However, data-Ingest, distribution and analysis of the petabytes of machine generated data are adding a new layer of complexity, cost and derived inefficiencies. This rapid expanse in data has weakened the data centers ability to meet the needs of today’s researchers.

DDN has three highly specialized teams – focused on Genomics, Clinical and Pharmaceutical Research. We understand the technology, the workflows, business issues and concerns being faced today and in the future. Find out how DDN can accelerate your discovery process while simplifying all aspects of your R&D pipeline.
